Lyrics “Under the Radar” of Parents

Posted on: 01/20/09 9:47 AM | by Jonathan McKee

I’m so used to today’s music being blatantly raunchy and sexual, I’m almost surprised when musicians use sneaky tactics to slip messages under the radar of parents. But that’s exactly what Britney has done with this new song on her popular new album Circus… she’s dropping the “F bomb” without actually saying it.

The song is If You Seek Amy. It looks innocent enough when you read it… but go ahead and say it like she does in the album. Read this outloud: “But all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek amy.”


David does an incredible job unveiling this in this week’s Youth Culture Window article.

Update: According to this Aussie newspaper, Britney might be changing the name of the song for some radioplay.

  1. Wow, I had to read that a bunch of times, then finally just listen to the song to get it. Guess I’m a little slow.

  2. This sort of thing is the reason I say in touch with web sites like yours. I can’t be in all places at once, and I have a plethora of musical tastes in my fairly small group. So I appreciate you helping me keep up on what’s all happening out there. Now, do you have any suggestions for getting parents to care and/or believe that their child is actually listening to this stuff?
